v. Motion Approved
G. Tim Flanagan asked again if the Placeholder for the third dorm is ok on the handout.
A concern was expressed that the placeholder is not where the committee passed
the motion on last week on.
The committee agreed that this is just a placeholder and a possible third option, but
that if the consultant Deborah Shepley has the opportunity to put the placeholder
where the committee requested in the motion than to do so.
Tim Flanagan comments that he has also requested the final draft from the
consultant and she should have that ready by this afternoon.
There was a question if another motion needs to be made. The committee agreed
that the motion still stands from the last meeting.
H. Tim Flanagan handed out a diagram for the Del Norte campus.
Stephen McCollum comments that the blue line drawn is not accurate as to where
the creek actually is. However, the creek was man manipulated and can still be
manipulated again.
There was a comment that the concern is not so much where the creek is at, but
where the placement of the buildings would be in relation to the creek.
There was a concern expressed that the diagram is not the Preferred Option of the
buildings being in the forested area to the West side of the creek.
Tim Flanagan responded that the Preferred Option was for the buildings to be in the
forested area, but if that was not feasible to move the buildings to the East side of
the creek.
Noted for the minutes that the diagram is an Alternate to the Preferred Option and
not the Preferred Option.
The committee agreed that the diagram is ok as an Alternate to the Preferred
